[Digikam-users] stalled while loading

Hi list,

I'm trying to track down a problem I've been seeing on my current
installation of digikam. I'm using the 0.9.0-beta1-r1 version, but saw
it in 0.8.1-2 also.

When I launch digikam, it will get past the "Initializing Main View" and
just stall at "Reading Database"

I can let it sit there all day and it'll never get past it. I end up
ctrl+c'ing the app and running it again.

This may happen 15 - 20 times in a row before it finally gets past the
"Reading Database" message.

There's an initial CPU spike, and then the cpu usage falls to zero. No
disk activity seen either (using dstat to check)

There are other times where the software will come right up in under 3

Anyone have any ideas how I can go about seeing what is stalling? I'm
open to recompiling anything.

Running FC4 on a 3GHz desktop with 1 gig of ram, but I've seen the same
long pause on a FC6 desktop (with a slower, 733Mhz) cpu
